Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Markus! Dark black pour with a thin white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, slight rye notes as well. Taste is a mix of slight biscuit, bread, hints of oak, slight bread and yeast, caramel, chocolate. Odd.

On tap at Ant n Bee, August 2013.
Almost black with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, some chocolate and caramel. The finish was dry and medium bitter. Descent stuff.

Shared with DrSilverworm. Pours inky dark brown with mocha head. .75cm. recedes slowly into lace. Smells roasty. Charred. Almost smoky. Loads of coffee. Deep-ass shit. Smells good. Slick and smooth. Medium body. Coffee flavor. A little dark fruit. Niiiiice. Touch of dark chocolate. "Roasty, almost smokey" keeps coming back to mind. This is tasty. Lighter carbonation than I was expecting. Creamy.

Can from Aeon mall near Narita airport. This looks promising: black pour with a big milk, chocolate head. The aroma reminds me of slightly sweetened coffee with milk; also some nice roasted malt. The flavor is a bit of a letdown though. Really kinda thin and bland. Fine overall.
